Whether the people like Jay-Z or not, everyone has to admit Magna Carta Holy Grail is the album everybody is looking for. Not too many people get away with bending the rules, Jay-Z doesn’t bend rules, he changes them. Even Jay-Z conceded the one million album sales through Samsung would not make him platinum, he’s platinum.
Magna Carta Holy Grail was announced less than a month ago, but everybody is talking about it. Of course, Jay-Z is the marketing master, responding to Lil Wayne’s 2011 diss on the upcoming album. Linking back up with Timbaland and Rick Rubin, Jay-Z also has new energy with Raekwon being in on the sessions.
Tomorrow is the big day, but Jay-Z has gotten the hip hop world’s attention a long time ago and he guaranteed he would stay platinum. Jay-Z reunited with Frank Ocean, Rick Ross, Beyonce, Nas, Pharrell, Justin Timberlake, and Swizz Beatz for the album. Today, the official album cover and track listing leaked.
